Programs for Military Youth and Teens

For many military parents, finding a safe and fun environment for their school-age children is a priority. The military’s youth and teen programs help fill the gap in a family’s care needs during summer break, holidays, and before-and after-school hours. Programs vary by service branch and installation, but most installations have a program for school-age children, as well as a youth center with organized activities.

Frequent relocation, separation from family and friends, the stresses of deployment and a steady paycheck from Uncle Sam can make military households an attractive target for scam artists. That’s why the Department of Defense, the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Office of Service Member Affairs, and Military Saves have joined to sponsor Military Consumer — a campaign to empower military and veteran communities with tips and tools to be informed consumers.

Military Spouse Preference in Employment

As a military spouse you are likely to move many times, which means that finding a job and building a career can be a challenge. Fortunately, several programs and organizations exist to help military spouses seeking employment. The Military Spouse Preference program (MSP), established under the Military Family Act of 1985, offers employment placement preference in Department of Defense (DoD) civilian personnel positions to military spouses who meet certain criteria. The program applies to DoD vacancies only, and there are variations and exceptions that allow local hiring authorities to tailor their policies to meet their requirements

Progress for Children with Special Needs and Their Transitioning Families | DoDLive

It’s no secret that the life of a military family is a transient one. Deployments and changes of duty stations are just a fact of life for service members and their loved ones. I know families who have multiple moving tags on the underside of desk and chairs, and they leave them there as sort of a badge of honor.

Bill of Rights

“Your commissary is a valuable nonpay benefit that you receive for your selfless service to our nation. The commissary is your military grocery store, a place where you can shop ‘inside the gate’ in a friendly, safe and secure environment. Whether at home or deployed, your family will receive quality products, great savings and the very best customer service possible. So, no matter where you are in the world, shop your commissary – enjoy your benefit – in a place where your family is our family!” — Joseph H. Jeu, DeCA Director and CE
